americans have said we can deal with the lies that president obama tells us because we believe in his heart he has the best interest for the american people. >> so that's what the white house is selling that president obama wants what is best for the folks. and i believe that's true in theory, in theory. he does want what's best for the folks. the problem is his vision is running up against reality. the economy is being held back by his tax policies and by obama care mandates on business. there is no question about that that's not what's best. the medical industry in america will suffer from obamacare. it will be harder for working folks to see a doctor and healthcare costs will actually rise because of co-pays and deductible, that's not what's best. barack obama will not believe me and others who see harm to the nation going forward. and that's where we are. and that's the memo. now, for the top story tonight, reaction, joining us from washington, fox news political analyst charles krauthammer. i think it's just theoretical, you know, it's this theoretical world that president obama seems

joy reid, all yours. >> leave it to ari to bring back eddie murphy. >>> president obama is making a list, and he's checking it twice. >> this is the defining challenge of our time. making sure our economy works for every working american. that's why i ran for president. the basic bargain at the heart of our economy. this increasing inequality is most pronounced in our country. a child may never be able to escape poverty, because she lacks a decent education or health care. that should offend all of us. what drives me is a grandson, a son, a father, an american, is to make sure that every striving, hard-working, optimistic kid has the same incredible chance that this country gave me. dr. king once said, of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking. not anymore. if you still don't like obama care, you owe it to the american people to tell us what you are for. not just what you're against. >>> here at 30 rock, we are counting down to tonight's lighting of the famous rockefeller christmas tree. that war on christmas, a lot of hum bug, of course. but as
, president obama delivered remarks on the economy at an event hosted by the center for american progress. the president clearly outlined who and what his administration stands for, and asked the question, what are republicans actually for? do i get to answer that? i'll tell you exactly what republicans are for. on tuesday, republicans members of the house judiciary committee, they held this little hearing called -- titled "the president's constitutional duty to faithfully execute the laws." the topic was one of their favorites, the prospect of impeaching the president of the united states, of course. the party of no wouldn't even use the word impeachment. >> the word that we don't like to say in this committee, and i'm not about to utter here in this particular hearing. >> really? this is nothing new. republicans talk impeachment every time they disagree with the president and his policies. libya, obama care, gun policy, you name it. the 113th congress, you know what they're going to do, go down as the least productive congress in modern history. the only thing republicans have done is t
obama care, which i'm sure that you cover a lot on your show, it causes the american people to not be comfortable with the leadership that we have right now. >> there's also a growing sense of isolation that we're seeing from this poll and when you were mentioning obama care and other domestic issues do you think the problems of a tough economy here at home is one reason why americans are fed up with the lack of real progress about solving our domestic challenges? is that why people are turning away from supporting major foreign policy move right now? simple i think that's part of it. i think the bigger thing is the disappointment and the deception on the part of this president as well as the administration and the democrat leaders, quite frankly, in washington, d.c. and particularly in one of the studies that was a harvard institute of politics study, also, that showed that even millenials have done a 180-degree flip-flop. a majority of millenials voted for president obama and now a majority of millenials do not like obama care and what's also scary is that they believe he

, obama care was passed at a time when 80% of americans indicated in polls they were satisfied with their health care. disrupting that was the political equivalent of knocking over a hornet's nest, and there seems little doubt at this point who is going to get stung. bret. >> you talk about winners. it appears you're talking about insurance coverage. we don't know about care at this point. >> exactly. for example, a lot of the uninsured and some who are losing their coverage are going to find themselves on medicaid. now, the reimbursement rates to doctors and other health care providers under medicaid are so low that a great many health care providers, doctors and the rest simply won't accept medicaid. so what you have for these people and perhaps many others as well, a growing doctor shortage, a growing shortage of hospitals that will take them. so what they ending up with is insurance, but not care. i think this is going to affect a lot of people and will add to the anger and resentment that we've talked about that others are already experiencing. >> all right, bret, thank yo

preventative care for 105 million cares. free preventive care. obama care provides health services to americans including free immunizations for children. free cancer screenings. free mammograms. what is your plan that would allow these folk, 105 million americans, to keep those benefits? >> first of all, there is nothing for free. you've got to pay for it. more people will lose their insurance under obama care. the republican plan is we have a choice. more choices not less. obama care narrows your choices. for competition, selling insurance across state line and above all, we're for driving premiums now. under obama care, the premiums are even higher. yonlt see any way obama care can work. >> let me turn to another subject. loans. last march, you took to the senate floor for 13 hours to filibuster a nomination because of your opposition to the military use of drones to attack u.s. citizens. this week as i'm sure you know, the head, we're looking at a picture of the drone right there, of amazon, announced they have plans, maybe five years down the road, that loans would come, pick up a package.

are trying to recycle back into the economy? on saturday, president obama called out republicans for targeting americans in need. >> it shouldn't be a partisan issue. for decades, congress has voted to offer relief to job seekers. including when the unemployment rate was lower than it is today. but now that economic lifeline is in jeopardy. all because republicans in this congress, which is on track to be be the most unproddive in history, have so far refused to extend it. >> well, i have to give credit to the republicans here. they have the country responding to and talking about the three things i've just pointed out when we have had 40, what, 5, 6 months of private sector oh job growth. when we have added 7 million jobs since president obama inherited the great recession. now that we've got unemployment down, according to the bureau of labor statistics, 7%, arguably, still in double digits. and they've got us believing that we're just not doing -- well, actually, we're doing too much for those who are in need. the president is talking about republicans like rand paul, from ken

have to pay today. >>> president obama is getting back on the offensive telling americans that healthcare.gov is working better than ever. he is launching a three week campaign saying the website is vastly improved and that oeb care is here to stay. that reassurance comes as the president is under renewed pressure to hold people accountable for the botched rollout. >> do not let the initial problems with the website discourage you. because it's working better now and it's going to just keep on working better over time. every day i check to make sure that it is working better. >> he's been logging in. >> a treasury department watchdog is noted potential problems come tax season. the inspector general for tax administration says existing irs systems do not have the capability to detect fraud when it comes to the subsidies to help people buy insurance in the form of tax credits. the administration officials say the irs aggressively safeguards the systems to combat any fraud and as the affordable care act is no exception. >>> the result of paul walker's autopsy are expected to
see 4 million americans have been unemployed for six months or more. here's what president obama had to say in his weekly address. take a listen. >> for many families it can be the difference between hardship and catastrophe. it makes a difference for a mother who suddenly doesn't know if she will be able to put food on the table for his kids or a father who lost his job and is looking for a new one. last year it ended 2.5 people out of poverty and cushioned the blow for many more. >> now, alex, republicans are making the opposite argument. they are saying that the low unemployment rate or relatively low unemployment rate speaks to the fact that the economy doesn't need more stimulus, that they don't need to extend unemployment insurance. interestingly, though, i'll point out two things. one, the democrats in the white house not insisting that unemployment insurance extension be a part of a budget deal that might be passed next week. and also, alex, there are no big tax cuts or spending hikes that are -- spending cuts or tax hikes on the more vie zone. that speaks to the fact that ev
, right? wrong. obama care is different. it won't work if young americans don't sign up. technology gives young people the luxury of instant everything. they've got news, they've got texts, pictures, videos, shopping, games. all at their fingertips. the good news about the obama care website is a complete misnomer. yes, it's better than it was but it's nowhere near writ should be for a website in 2013. effort very people you need to get in there and get involved. and then there's this. a recent gallop poll shows 37% of americans age 18 to 29d say they are not particular with the health care law. compare to to a quarter to the older age groups. the fine is $95 or 1% of a family's income for not having insurance next year. experts say it's going to take a couple years to get younger americans enrolled. mopeful hopefully by that time the remember site will be fixed. for real, really fixed. that's it for this week's "your money." see you back here at 9:30 eastern and 2:00 p.m. eastern as well. see you there. >>> hello, everyone. i'm fredricka whitfield. a storm system has lashed partz of the

"the washington post" obtained a copy of this letter. >>> it is 34 minutes past the hour. let's get a check of the weather. are we talking snow again? >> we are, but not yet. i'll start on the positive side this time, right? >> nice smile. thank you. >> on the southeast. let's talk about temperatures. look at these temperatures. they are amazing. in atlanta, 72 degrees. looks like as we get through thursday when the average is 58. even here in new york city, we are talking about temperatures above normal. >> nice! thank you! >> enjoy it because it's all changing. of course. look at the snow totals we have seen in the system out west. you can actually see pretty good amounts. this system today will push to the east and diving farther down to the south so seeing some snow through colorado today. let's t
. earlier today, president obama kicked off his latest push, and asked americans to help him spread the word. >> i'm going to need some help in spreading the word. i need you to spread the word about the law, about its benefits, protections, about how folks can sign up. tell your friends. tell your family. do not let the initial problems with the website discourage you. >> okay. now, this, of course, is going to turn into an all-out messaging war, just how good are the democrats going to be at this. which is exactly why talk like this has to be countered. >> remember, before the affordable care act, these bad apple insurers had free reign every year to limit the care you received or use minor preexisting conditions to jack up your premiums or bill you into bankruptcy. so a lot of people thought they were buying coverage and it turned out not to be so good. >> if he really wants to go on offense, president obama needs, in my opinion, to tell it like it is about those bad apple insurers. they are selling substandard junk insurance. but for -- there just seems to be a great deal of reluctance o
information of the american people. bret. >> mike, thank you. >>> president obama is learning sooner or later everything comes back to his health care plan. chief white house correspondent ed henry reports on a day that did not start out that way. >> reporter: eager to steady a disastrous start to his second term, president obama today began a very deliberate attempt to fire up his political base. first delivering a speech sponsored by the liberal center for american progress on income inequality, a topic that warms the cockles of progressive hearts. >> we don't promise equal outcomes, we strived to deliver equal opportunity. >> reporter: and with some of the young people who helped elect him now appearing to bail on him, the president later dropped by a youth summit at the white house and practically begged the young and healthy folks to sign up for his health care law. >> and that's why i'm here, because i need your help. >> reporter: top republicans fired back today the president has now had five years in office. so if americans are feeling insecure about cancelled health plans and stagnan
-800-medicare >> president obama sat down with chris matthews for an exclusive interview at american university. the president addressed problems with the obama care website and talked about the perception of mismanagement within his administration. >> the management of government and part of the reason people are so skeptical is that when we do things right, they don't get a lot of attention. if we do something that is perceived as a screw up, it will be on the nightly news for a week. when my former secretary of defense, wonderful public servant served under seven presidents, i asked him so bob, you got any advice for me? he said understand you have a lot of people working for you. someone at this very moment is screwing something up. that's true. i have to consistently push on every cabinet secretary and on every agency. how can we do things better and we can. >> the president was asked about 2016 and the possible democratic nominees. >> vice president joe biden and hillary clinton. compare and contrast. >> not a chance am i going there. here's what i will say. both hillary and joe would mak
president obama. one of the things we'll look at is mandela's relationship with american presidents. both starting with the anti-apartheid movement. also once he became a president. his work with bill clinton, his work with george w. bush. he would tangle with presidents. he was a very fierce critic of president bush on the issue of the iraq war. but also worked closely with him on the issue of aids. and he was also a great consoler of president clinton in his toughest times of the impeachment trial as well. we're going to look at all that today. also look at the -- really talk to some people who knew him very, very well. the human rights lawyer who helped draft a constitution of south africa. his pollster in the presidential elections. we're trying to look at the politician and his impact on american politics. >> and not to take away from his amazing accomplishments as the president of south africa, but the country is still plagued by problems, economic and racial. >> even though they are coming together and all coming together for nelson mandela, you have economic inequality. social ine

obama's speech. it was from the center for american progress. [video clip] >> for one thing, these trends are bad for our economy. one study finds that growth is more fragile and recession is more frequent in countries with greater inequality. .hat makes sense when families have less to spend, businesses have fewer customers. households rack up greater mortgage and credit card debt. topentrated wealth at the will not result in broadly based consumer spending that drives our economy and with less regulation, it may contribute to risky speculative bubbles. rising inequality and declining mobility are bad for families and social cohesion. not just because we tend to trust our institutions us, but studies show we actually tend to test -- trust each other less. host: that was the president yesterday talking about income inequality. toare turning to all of you get your stories. are you able to move up the economic ladder? we have the lines divided by age. start calling us now. you can put your comments on facebook or tweet us as well. a response from house speaker john boehner's s
the truth. he did mislead the american people. and do not understand how we can deny it here between from california system all the money obama has been so far on the affordable care act we could have given every american over $1 million, and they could have paid for their own health care for the rest of their lives. and here is gene from new york. the biggest problem with obamacare is that it is a government project. no budget concerns because it is not their money. the supply seems to be endless. so if they lose money or don't care who cares -- it does not work. it cares? is the taxpayers' money. to san michele and e-mail, go to gerriwillis.com. coming up monday, back with another installment of for users guide. all next week she will be answering your questions on taxes and had to be ready for year-end. lows on friday she will be taking your phone calls in the man's life. that is it for tonight on "the willis report." i'm dennis kneale. thank you for joining us. have a great weekend. ♪ ♪ lou: we have finally overcome the economic crisis of 2008. at least in terms of the unemploymen
